Scrappy Cards with Alicia!

Good morning Quick Quotes readers, Alicia blogging today with a cute way to use up some scraps. 

If you are like me you hate to throw out any scrap of beautiful paper like Quick Quotes papers. This card is a great way to use up and show off some beautiful papers. 

I simply used a 1.25" square punch to create a pile of squares. I then started arranging them on my 4.25x5.5 card base. I decided to mat the grid on a piece of designer paper cut 1/8" smaller than the card. Then I chalked them up and placed them in the grid pattern. 

Add a sentiment, mine are die cut words, and some embellishments! Quick cards that use scraps and show of beautiful papers, you can't beat that!

Use Those Scraps with Connie!

Hi, Connie here with a tutorial for using up those paper scraps, left over from other projects.  I'm using the Earth Wind Fire collection (coming soon) by Quick Quotes.  I had some pretty good size scraps  to create with.  Basically I pieced them together to make one sheet of paper~

This is how I began...


1. Gather your scrap papers.
2. Piece them together creating one sheet of paper by laying the pieces on cardstock or another paper from the collection.
3. Ink around the edges of the scrap pieces with Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk inks.
4. Adhere the pieces to the base sheet.
5. Add color to the chipboard word with Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk inks and adhere to the page.

Then to finish the project, I framed it!

Follow Your Heart with Susie

Hello and welcome! Susie here hosting the blog today with a layout inspired by the Quick Quotes July Sketch Challenge.  I combined papers from our 3 newest lines to create this lovely monochromatic page!

I enjoy working with sketches because they always give you a great starting point.   Sometimes I choose to follow them almost exactly, but you will see that this time I took some liberties with the original design and I love the way my layout turned out!

Here is the sketch:

I started with Honeycomb 105 as the base for the layout. The 2 strips creating the upper and lower borders on the sketch were converted on my layout to one strip of green from Urban Oasis 101 with a punched edge.

I also changed the sketch by using a much larger photo than the sketch suggests - this is one of the pictures from my daughter's senior photo shoot!

The title was created with pieces I had left over from the February Club Q kit but don't worry!  The good news is that there are similar elements you can use from the Chiffon Collection: Chiffon 500 and Chiffon Strip.

I cut them out and matted them with the green before mounting them on patterned paper from the Earth Wind and Fire Collection (EWF-109).

Instead of 3 tags, I die cut 3 flowers from wool felt and clustered them next to the photo.  The pearls in the center of each flower and the pearl flourish are both from Want2Scrap.

The sketch challenge closes at 11:55pm PST tonight so you still have today to get your entry in! You can check out all the details HERE.

Quick Quotes Supplies:

  • Honeycomb 105
  • Urban Oasis 101 
  • Earth Wind and Fire 102, 109
  • February Club Q Kit
Other supplies: Want2Scrap Swirls Finesse and 72 Count Pearls - LeCreme, Martha Stewart border punch, Therm O Web Zots

Dreaming with Martha!

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you my interpretation of the this month's sketch challenge. You know I love to create cards, so I turned this challenge into one. It was very easy, take a look at my card:

Now take a look at the sketch:

  • To create this I used some papers of the Chiffon Collection mixed with Whistlin' Dixie and Farmhouse.
  • First I cut the base using a piece of card stock of 5-1/2"x8-1/2" with score in 4-1/4".
  • Then I cut a second layer using the stamped side of Chiffon 101. I pasted this layer directly over the card base.
  • I cut a third layer on the Orange side of Whistlin' Dixie 108 and sponge all the borders of this using Milk Chocolate PowderPuff Chalk Ink. I paste this over the card using zapdots or dimensionals.
  • I cut some flowers using a Builder Blossom die cuts and Farmhouse 102 paper and inked the borders of these using Orange Slice PowderPuff Chalk Ink. Also, I cut some leaves from the same collection of die cuts using the green side of Chiffon 104 and I inked the borders of leaves with Green Leaf PowderPuff Chalk Ink. I pasted all of these on the left side to create the composition that the sketch required.
  • For the title, I die cut the word Dream and sponged it with Seabrook PowderPuff Chalk Ink and later pasted it over the left side of the third layer of the card.

Quick and easy! It is not too late to participate in our challenge! HERE you will find all the details and you are free to use the sketch on your way. This is only inspiration that you can create with amazing details, inks and papers!

Jewelry Inspiration with Alicia!

Good morning Quick Quotes readers, Alicia posting some off the page creations today!

I recently purchased some glass and trays to make charms. I had so much fun finding scraps among my Quick Quotes papers and stickers to create these sweet necklaces.

First, I made all 5 charms, then I decided I didn't want them all to be necklaces. I used the anchor as a centerpiece for a flip it card. I kept the others necklaces but incorporated one into a gift card for double duty!

These are super easy to make:
  • Apply a glue medium that dries clear to the back of the glass and press down on your image
  • Wipe away excess glue with a cotton swab
  • After drying cut your image around the edge of the glass
  • Finally use a super strong adhesive to adhere it to the tray
  • Add a jump ring and add to a chain or ribbon

Quick Quotes Products (Anchor Card):

Other Products:
Craft Fantastic Tray and Glass
Sail On sentiment ODBD
Sizzix Regal Flipit Die
White Card Stock

Quick Quotes Products (Necklaces):
sentiment Stickers

Other Products:
Blue Moon Beads Mantra Me Charms
Craft Fantastic Tray and Glass
Ball Chain and Closure
Jump Rings

For the gift card, I used one of the necklaces I had created and incorporated it into a card. I used coordinating Farmhouse papers and popped up the topper on pop dots to have room for the necklace to hang between that layer and the base of the card.

I put the chain in a zip lock to keep it from hanging out the bottom.  I cut a couple of notches in the paper to hold the necklace in place. I also used Versamark ink and a clear embossing powder to make some transparent wings.

I hung the necklace right over the center of the wings.  It is subtle but really fits with the chipboard sentiment.

Families Page with Connie

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the Earth Wind Fire collection (coming soon) by Quick Quotes. The collection is full of beautiful papers to create with. Blue, green and a pop of orange color that looks amazing together.

The round flowers are on one of the patterned papers, in the collection, and were cut out and used as embellishments to create with.  I love clustering embellishments on a scrapbook page.  This collection also comes with a page that is covered with triangles. Perfect to create a great looking banner for the corner of the page.

The bottom cluster is mounted on a library card envelope. The tags were created using the Vellum Quotes/families by Quick Quotes.
